GET TO KNOW THE PHOTOGRAPHERS

We are a family team, whether it's Elysha working with Matt (her husband) or Danica (her sister) as her second photographer, or if you have the whole team of us when you add on video.

Elysha has been working in the wedding industry for seventeen years now and weddings have always been an important part of who she is as a person. As a photographer now for seven years, she has honed her skills technically and creatively to ensure that each couple  receives a beautiful visual story of their most important day. She is constantly learning and perfecting her craft and loves when she gets to be an involved part of each unique wedding. 
Matt is Elysha's other half, and when he's not working as a nurse or coaching wrestling, he's usually by her side either photographing or doing video at a wedding. He has perfected the art of getting the in-between moments when Elysha is directing portraits, or just being where she can't be and getting those treasured candid moments.
Danica is Elysha's sister, a great addition to the team and constantly learning new things about photography and the art of weddings. She has become an expert at corralling family members for portraits and generally being exactly where she's needed to make things run smoothly for everyone.

FROM PAST WEDDING CLIENTS

"We feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Elysha! I had seen some of her work, and had heard great things about her from friends. We were excited to get the chance to have her as our photographer too! From the very beginning of our wedding planning, Elysha was so supportive, organized, professional, and kind. We knew we were in great hands from the very start! On our wedding day, she and her partner were very prepared, encouraging, positive, warm, and fun. They took amazing photos and captured so many memorable and special moments. We love looking at our wedding photos and will cherish them for years to come! Thank you!"

-Megan and Sean
The Old Lantern, Charlotte Vermont

"My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Elysha for our wedding and she exceeded our expectations in every way imaginable! She is very down to earth and ensured that everything we wanted was accomplished on our special day. She is extremely talented and captured the most intimate of moments including our "First Look" and our "I Do!" beautifully! One of the great things about working with Elysha was she was always thinking ahead. She scouted our wedding area thoroughly before our pictures started, making sure each setting and moment was perfectly executed. Her assistants were always around to lend a helping hand, even if that meant holding the veil in just the right spot! Bryan and I will cherish these photos forever and are 100% confident you will have the same experience if you choose Elysha to capture your special day.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. "

the process

I pride myself on the service I provide to my clients, not only in the delivery of images but also in the time and dedication that I devote to each and every couple. It is so important that you feel taken care of, and that you are spending your wedding day with someone you can trust and relax with, so I take the time during the planning process to get to know you, whether that's via email and Skype sessions, or in person over coffee. 
Many of my couples decide to do an engagement session with me, which is a great way to get to know each other and for you to get comfortable in front of the camera with me. 

Once you book with me (a 25% retainer deposit to hold your date), we can start planning an engagement session that reflects you perfectly as a couple. We can also begin the timeline planning process, and create the ideal plan for your wedding day to make the most of our time together and for you to enjoy your special day.
I have flexible payment plans available and can customize a collection that best fits your needs, as well as recommend vendors I have loved working with who will help make your wedding go seamlessly and beautifully, exactly as planned.

engagement sessions

What a wonderful way to enjoy each other's company and have fun in front of the camera!

As wonderful and special as your wedding day will be, it will also be a whirlwind of schedules and a flurry of activity that goes by so quickly that many couples have a hard time taking it all in.
When you choose to book an engagement session, we have so much more control over timing and creativity when it comes to photos. From strolls on the beach to hiking in the mountains, you can pick exactly the right location and situation that reflects the two of you as a couple. Plus, we can have so much FUN!
Some couples do a traditional engagement announcement with their photos, others might choose a favorite image and use it as a guest "book" for their loved ones to sign on their wedding day. No matter what you choose to do, these photos will surely be ones that you cherish forever.

How long have you been photographing weddings? How many weddings do you typically photograph?

2019 is my eighth season of photographing weddings, and I currently have capped myself at ten weddings per year in order to devote lots of time and attention to each couple.

What equipment do you use?

I shoot on full frame Nikon camera bodies, with a variety of professional lenses. I also have professional lighting equipment to use in dark reception spaces.
Matt uses both Nikon and Sony camera bodies when shooting video.

How do we receive our wedding photos?

Each client gets a private, password-protected online gallery that they may share with family and friends, as well as a custom USB with all of their wedding images.
Elysha often blogs weddings with some highlight images of the day and a written story, great for sharing via social media.

faq

How many photos will we get from our wedding?

Each wedding is unique, but I usually tell clients to expect roughly 75-100 images per hour of wedding day coverage.
